Starting from the 2017 Swift DZire, Maruti is planning to implement the hybrid system in more number of vehicles in the coming years.
Maruti has already been the most successful automaker in the Indian market. As the government laws to adhere to the emission norms will become stricter from next year, Maruti is planning to implement hybrid technology in most of its offerings. Currently, Maruti offers mild-hybrid variants of the Ciaz and Ertiga diesel, and both of them have fetched remarkable sales of 1,00,000 units.
As per reports, the upcoming 2017 Swift DZire is highly expected to receive the mild-hybrid technology and could further be implemented on more Maruti vehicles. A company official has said that they are looking forward to installing the mild-hybrid technology in a huge number of offerings which could help people understand the advantages of the full hybrid technology.
To make people aware of the benefits of SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) system, the company considers it important to inform buyers about the working of this system and how it is highly beneficial. The company’s upcoming urban hatchack, the Ignis, as stated by an official, won’t receive the mild-hybrid system and the exact reason for it is unknown.
